The total output is 230 hp. (350 Nm). Later, a hybrid modification will debut with a larger battery that can be charged from an external network.
  • In North America and South Korea, there will be a version of the Sorento with a four-cylinder 2.5 turbo engine with combined injection. Engine power - 281 HP (421 Nm). He also works in tandem with an eight-speed "robot" with two clutches.
